There are currently about three million more cybersecurity specialists needed than available, according to recent data from (ISC)2. That big, scary number will get bigger and scarier still in 2019, according to Michael Flouton, vice president of product ops and security strategy for Barracuda Networks. Needless to say, that will leave many businesses dangerously exposed to today’s increasingly varied and sophisticated exploits.
“The balance between the resource, skills and expertise of the ‘good guys’ who are fighting attacks and the ‘bad guys’ who are launching the attacks in the first place is a very delicate one,” says Flouton in an emailed analysis. “In 2019, get ready for a skills gap tipping point.”
